Wednesday, June 20th The Georgia Aquarium


The best part of summer (okay, at least a good day), is when benefit, HR and finance professionals gather in uncommon places to laugh, eat well and grow, both personally and professionally.


This place is called Summer Jam! Join us as we gather again at the Georgia Aquarium (one last time) Wednesday, June 20th. Your attendance gets you a complimentary pass into the aquarium, great knowledge on news you need to hear, and insights and interaction on what your peers are doing and thinking.  Hosted by Alexander & Company, a Woodstock-based benefits brokerage firm.


Why the name “Summer Jam”?  For years, attendees were blessed by an amazing act of love begun by Dale’s mother, Ms. Louise.  She personally made over

200 jars of (fantastic) homemade jam for you to enjoy.  It was one

of her many acts of service to others.  While she is no longer with us,

her spirit during this day will certainly be present.


Bring an appetite for growth (and food) and an attitude of happiness and join us on June 20th from 8:30 am - 3:00 pm for what promises to be an exciting day! Registration is free, but seating is limited, so sign up today!
